About Founder

Shiv R. Jhawar, the founder of Noble World Foundation, wrote the book, Building a Noble World, to promote peace through meditation. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization. In June 2018, Jhawar was honored with the prestigious Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award for his outstanding career achievements.

Profiled in Wikipedia, Jhawar's academic and professional credentials are impressive. He received a Bachelor of Commerce (Honors) degree from the University of Calcutta in 1968, securing a position in the top ten merit list. In 1970, he became a Chartered Accountant and a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. He served as a lecturer in commerce at H.R. College of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai during 1971-1973 before moving to the United States for higher studies.

In the United States, Jhawar attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he earned a Master of Accounting Science degree in 1974. Upon graduating from the university, he came to Chicago, where he met Swami Muktananda, an eminent yogi and celebrated author of the book, Play of Consciousness. Recalling his dramatic kundalini energy awakening experience in the presence of Swami Muktananda on September 16, 1974, Jhawar writes, "Once you have an experience of transcendental reality, you are changed forever."

In a week after his said spiritual birthday, Jhawar found a job as an accounts analyst with CBS Television in Chicago. In 1979, Jhawar qualified as an Enrolled Agent and began his own tax practice in Chicago.

Jhawar lives in Chicago and balances his tax practice with meditation practice. He is a prolific speaker who blends spirituality, politics, history, and science in a unique and powerful way. Gifted with the ability to communicate profound concepts clearly, Jhawar has been giving spiritual talks and teaching meditation since 1974. You can send your message by clicking on Contact.

Foundation's Mission

Noble World Foundation (NWF) is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization founded in October 2004 in Illinois. Its mission is to promote the inner transformation of individuals for peace, harmony, and well-being in the world.

Inner transformation means transforming the condition of the human mind, which is prone to defects such as anger, lust, greed, infatuation, jealousy, and pride. Once these defects leave, the mind becomes absolutely peaceful.  Individuals who experience inner peace through meditation naturally radiate that peace into their surroundings, contributing to harmony and peace in the world.

Individuals make a family, families make a society, societies make a nation, and nations make a world. Thus, individuals are the world. When individuals improve, the world automatically improves.

NWF serves people of all races, creeds, and religions through this website. It offers various programs that lead people to the path of meditation.

NWF is an all-volunteer-run charitable organization. Your donation to NWF is tax-deductible because it is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.
